A section of Business School students has elected a male representative to the Women's Student Association (WSA) for perhaps the first time in the organization's six year history, a WSA co-president said Monday.
Section E, one of the arbitrarily assigned groups of about 80 students, last week chose Leon Maslewicki and Anne J. Morianiere as co-representatives to WSA this year, Susan E. Posner, co-president of the WSA said.
"This is the first time that I've known of a man being elected as a representative," Posner added.
Masiewicki said he hopes to increase the currently low male membership in the association because "men and women will have to deal with the increasing roles of women in business."
Masiewicki said he expects the proportion of women in the business professions eventually to equal the ratio of men to women in the general population.
Adam Klein, a first year business student, said yesterday he does not object to Masiewicki's election, but added "if a man were elected as the only representative, that would defeat the purpose of the women's organization--meeting women's needs."
Representative Morianiere said Monday she thinks the idea of electing a man to WSA is a "natural one."
Women in the 1971 Business School class of over 700 students formed the WSA to provide a feeling of unity to the 28 female students in that class, Posner said Monday.
With this year's rise in the enrollment of women to 20 percent of the student body, the role of the WSA has expanded, Posner said. The group is basically geared toward women, although men may attend the group's exam review sessions, guest lectures and other activities, she added.
